A Preacher attended a funeral where the story was told of a woman who was dying of cancer. She gave some last instructions to her pastor and one of them was that she was to be buried with a fork in her hand.
The pastor was puzzled at her request and asked for her reason. “Well, you see, when you eat at a fancy banquet, and they remove the plate after the first course, they always tell you to keep to your fork. That means something real good is about to follow.”
“My life has been good and God has greatly blessed me. However, I know the best is yet to come. So I want to keep my fork. Also, all those who see it will be reminded when they see a fork, the best is yet to come. So, you see Pastor, I’m counting on you to see that the fork in my hand is visible to all, because the best is yet to come.”
“For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better:” Philippians 1:23.
